The only operators of the F-18 are Australia, Canada, Finland, Kuwait, Malaysia, Spain, Switzerland and USA. Out of those only USA has carriers capable of F-18/C-130 take-off. F-18 range is 2000 km, but generally about 700km combat radius. In addition to identifying the workhorse of the US Navy aerial operations the C-130 Hercules.

Could be a drug exercise in the region with the US Navy.

A aircraft carrier doesn't necessarily has to be near. Puerto Rico is less than 2000km away plus from the pic it has extra tanks fitted giving it is full range as it has no armament.

Yep, could be. But a carrier provides mobility, flexibility and a base of support for any exercise. In military operations it's vital to keep the supply and communications chain short.

several years back, circa 1998 / 1999 (subject to correction), there was a car show in chaguaramas, with a fly-by from some Venezuelan jets....I missed that bit but from what I heard, the sound was awesome...........that was probably the closest we got to an airshow :(

Oh rfari...there isnt any real vantage point for pics from the roadside... the most you getting is a glimpse from around the bend by Katerserv.

MG Man, there was an airshow many years ago.

Can't remember the exact year but i remember seeing a C-130, a few attack helicopters and even a couple jets.

I believe it was hosted by AATT.

Well Civil Aviation Annual Day is the closest thing we have to an airshow. They have static displays of local civil and military aircraft with 2 choppers and crop duster performing some manoeuvres at the end. They had a Venezuelan C-130 taking off too :roll:

But the problem is that with one well maintained +5000ft runway on the island it is hard to occupy it for an airshow when we have commercial flights every 2-5mins.
